Life Transformation – that is our purpose.
For 14 years, The Dwelling Place has provided safe shelter and comprehensive services leading to life transformation for women and children who are victims of domestic abuse. Our program gives women the tools they need to heal spiritually, emotionally and physically from the destruction of abuse, end the generational cycle of abuse, and become economically self-sufficient. The funds raised from our 14th Annual Gala will allow The Dwelling Place to continue protecting families and transforming lives.
